A mathematical model for the impact of slip velocity on peristaltic transport of blood flow has been investigated by utilizing the Herschel-Bulkley model in a flexible tube. The closed-form solutions are obtained for velocity, plug flow velocity, and volume flux. It is noticed that the impact of yield stress, amplitude ratio, Darcy number, velocity slip parameter, elastic parameters and fluid behavior index plays a vital role in controlling the flux in an elastic tube. The outcomes acquired from the flow quantities reveal that, the volume flux in a flexible tube decreases with an increase in the porous parameter and it increases with an increase in the slip parameter. Further, the results of Newtonian, Bingham plastic and Power-law models have been presented graphically and analysed.
